Day 145: Oh, Say Can You See!

The Star Spangled Banner [youtube.com]
Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Most definitely an amateur trying to photograph many beautiful explosions. At least the photographer was having fun. Isn't that the end result!? There were some pretty crazy looking photos.

I love fireworks! Nice shots! The fireworks show here tonight was in a downpour of rain! Good thing I got some pictures on the 3rd! I've posted mine for the 5th of July, if you want to visit mine.
